Casa D'or Hotel
Ranked #37 of 113 Hotels in Beirut
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 16, 2012

In a city where many hotels can be expensive, Casa D’Or offers excellent value for money.

Transfer from the airport: all very smooth and easy, exactly as arranged via email beforehand. US$33 for a 15 minute journey.

Location: perfect for Hamra, with the American University less than 5 minutes walk away and the Corniche 5 to 10 minutes. The central business district with the re-constructed French buildings, the new souk and the delightful Zaintunay Bay is about 25 minutes walk; the bar/restaurant area of Gemmayzeh about 35 to 45 minutes (or under 10 minutes in a taxi). Whilst Hamra is certainly one of the more authentic and vibrant districts in the city, I would probably stay in the re-built central business district area on a subsequent visit, as the centre of gravity of Beirut continues to move eastwards.

Check-in/front desk: everyone was delightful and very helpful. However, they could provide better maps of the city (in general, there are very few street signs and names in Beirut).

Room: very clean, with fridge and hot plates (not used by me), clean bathroom with decent pressure for the shower. The hotel might want to consider offering hair conditioner as an amenity. They gave me a kettle for my stay. Very comfortable bed. Room was a decent size. There was continual, low level noise from the large air conditioning units in the back courtyard (I had requested a room at the back, to avoid the noise of the traffic/frequentl taxi honking at the front); in addition the in-room air conditioner was somewhat noisy, plus there was a light hum from the fridge – so this is not the quietest of hotels. The room curtains were very thin, so if your sleeping pattern is sensitive to bright morning sunlight from pre 6 am, remember to take eye shades. Internet access worked very well, but cost $22 for around 24 hours of access spread over 6 days (but remember to log out when done otherwise the meter keeps clocking).

Breakfast: very good – cereals, breads and pastries, cold cuts, cheese, eggs, fruits. You can request an omelette. The waiter was a bit grumpy. The breakfast room was calm and tastefully furnished (indeed all the communal areas were well appointed and felt calm compared to the frenetic pace of Hamra outside). Potentially the hotel could offer an espresso/cappuccino machine, rather than just filter coffee. Wi-fi worked smoothly in all the communal areas.

Other: there is a food supermarket (Co-Op) less than 5 minutes away (turn right out of the hotel, then immediately left and it is about a block away on the left hand side). To buy drinks, there is a shop called 24/7 on Hamra (turn left out of the hotel, left on Hamra – about 5 minutes away on the left hand side near Starbucks). There are innumerable coffee shops and restaurants very close to the hotel.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Casa D’Or

I have spent 7 days at this hotel and my experience is really great. It is very well located in the heart of Hamra and next to the American University of Beirut. The room was very clean and comfortable, provided with all the necessary things to be well, also a small kitchen. The restaurant is very interesting and has good prices. But what I really appreciate most is the friendly staff at the reception, rooms and restaurant. All of them are very nice and happy to help. Definitely, I recommend this hotel for families, couples, tourists and business. It is extemely clean and comfortable.

Im confused as to how this hotel has received such positive feedback. My guest and I checked out only 5 minutes after checking in and demanded a refund immediately!!! The room was extremely old and had a horrible odour. The manager offered to upgrade us to a business suite, but that was just as bad. There was no way we were going to spend a night for that much money in such a dive.

Stay away!!!!

First we would like to thank the reviewer for his time to comment on a Hotel he was able to discover in about 5 minutes. The complain about the smell was related to New carpeting installed in the Room. As for the rating of our establishment, its actually set by "Bureau Veritas", an International Auditing & inspection company duly assigned by the minsitry of Tourism, their latest inspection was completed 2 days ago without any rectifications required regarding the property. The inspection report & certification are available for review to all hotel guests and we do apply satisfaction guarantee policy in our establishement, therefore the guest was duly refunded upon request.

Our stay in the hotel was very quiet and comfortable. Upon our arrival we received a basket of fruits-complements of the hotel. The room was large and comfortable with a kitchenette. The bathroom was small but clean. During our three-day stay we didn't experience any inconvenience.
